Further Notes
  • Pandemonium Warden will still despawn normally if left unclaimed for 3 minutes. If a wipe is required then he will still need to be tagged every couple of minutes.
  • If all individuals who have developed enmity die, Pandemonium Warden will return to his spawn point, with his train of lamps, and will not be aggressive to any non-combat action. (someone tried to say this was wrong and even said he was sitting which will pull aggro from mobs that aggro to healing. But that far from makes it aggresive...)
  • Calling for Help during any form on Pandemonium Warden will prevent the NM from changing to his next form (even when that form is killed). Pandemonium must be claimed and not in orange in order for it to continue on to the next form or the battle will end.
  • Upon being defeated, Pandemonium Warden says "This is the end. . .of nothing. . .Defeating me proves only that you harbor the seeds of evil within your trembling flesh. . .Someday. . .they shall come. . .into fruition. . ."

Historical Background

Pandæmonium" (American English "Pandemonium") stems from Greek "παν", meaning "all" or "every", and "δαιμόνιον", meaning "little spirit" or "little angel", or, as Christians interpreted it, "little daemon", and later, "demon" (thus roughly translated as "All Demons"). It is the name invented by John Milton for the capital of Hell, "the High Capital, of Satan and his Peers", built by the fallen angels at the suggestion of Mammon at the end of Book I, Paradise Lost (1667). A comparison in meaning can be made with "pantheon", which refers to all of the gods. Book II begins with the debate among the demons in the council-chamber of Pandæmonium. The demons built it in about an hour, but it far surpassed all human palaces or dwellings; it may have been small, though, since the demons are described as shrinking from their titanic size in order to fit in.

In terms of Vana'diel, the title implies that the Pandemonium Warden is the watchman over all demons, possibly a guardian of Hades, Vana'diel's underworld. The choice of Aydeewa Subterrane for his location, and whether or not there is any sort of link to the story is as of yet unknown. It is also noteworthy that most or all of the Pandemonium Lamps summoned by Pandemonium Warden are in reference to creatures existing in Greek and Roman mythology. (see testimonials)
